Lloyd was a truck driver up until his health prevented him from doing what he loved. His passion was working on older model cars and trucks. He built models from a young age and would have continued if not for his health issues.  He would be the first person to stop and help someone in need. He had a big heart and loved his family. He was a Kentucky man through and through. He would have preferred to be outside, whether camping in his truck, working on any vehicle or traipsing through the woods.  Lloyd was loved and will be missed by many. 

Per Lloyd’s wishes, he was cremated and his ashes will be scattered at a later date in some of his favorite parts of Kentucky. 

Styninger Funeral Home in Nashville is in charge of arrangements.
